Paula's Choice RESIST Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum

We love ourselves a vigorous antiaging cream, but here’s the rub: They tend to be a tad on the greasy side and rarely take oily skin into consideration. Not so with this ultralightweight serum from Paula’s Choice. The water-based formula is designed especially for oily, enlarged pores and is also suitable for use around the eyes. Not only does it come loaded with clinically proven antioxidants for a smooth, matte look that minimizes the appearance of pores, but it targets wrinkles without retinol, which can upset oily skin.

I don't have much of a need right now for an anti-aging product, but it did feel light and smooth.

Made me breakout
Sampled

I liked the sample size of this product but after only one application, I started to breakout all over my face. At first, I thought it was just my imagination, so I kept using it for another 2 days. After noticing that the problem didnt go away or get better, I stopped using it. I was excited to try another skincare product by this brand but was very disappointed with the results. If you have sensitive or acne prone skin, this product is probably not for you:(

Meh...

I didn't like the texture of this product, and it didn't seem like it did anything. Oh well.

Not really effective, and the sample is too small for me to actually use it long enough to see if it's effective or not

Not quite the demographic

Call me lucky, but I do not have any wrinkles. I don't think I am the target audience for this type of product, as I did not see any noticable difference around my eyes. Oh well, too bad. At least my mother has a new beauty product!

This product felt alright, i didn't feel like it made a ton of difference in my skin though. Nice sample, but i don't think it would be something i would use regularly.

This made my skin feel so oily. I already have oily skin so I did not appreciate this.

While this went on very smooth, I broke out pretty bad after using it for 3 days.
